Khalida is one of the bravest women I know. We talk about her courage and determination to speak out for women, to speak out for change in Afghanistan, even when her life was threatened.

As a girl Khalida played football with her brothers. When she became a teenager this had to stop. Instead, she set up a school team and went on to become captain of Afghanistan women’s national team. She now lives in Denmark with her family after receiving death threats.

Khalida recently led the investigation into the president of the Afghanistan Football Association, Keramuudin Karim, sexually assaulting women in the team. Karim is now banned from all sports for life and the case sparked the MeToo movement in Afghanistan.

Khalida is a powerful, bold voice for women and women’s rights who will inspire you to use your visibility and voice to fulfil your true purpose.

What they say

When I aligned with my heart new financial partnerships came knocking at my door, my website traffic went up by 50% and my turnover up by 30%. Being in the Financial Times is the pinnacle for me as a personal finance writer.

Lynn Beattie, Mrs MummyPenny

“I loved PR with Heart. Kat, you are so intuitive you can tune into what we need and support us. The group has so much support to give you momentum, accountability and encouragement. The structure for me, breaking it down into small steps made it much more manageable. And listening to your heart. I wouldn’t normally do that and it pinpointed obvious actions and sparks of ideas.”

Denise McAlister, Let’s Talk STI’s

“I’ve created my whole PR with Heart plan. It’s thanks to you that I got into Yoga Magazine. You gave me the courage to go for it. Now I have a book review and article in the November and December editions.”

Sue Blanch, Yoga and the Menstrual Cycle

“’It is enjoyable to make things visible, which are invisible’ – Eric Cantona. This quote speaks volumes about you Kat. You are an inspiration now and always.”

Dave Cobban, Director, Nike Sustainable Business and Innovation

“My PR plan became the creative, energetic heart of my project. What emerged was surprising, energising, and far larger than I expected. This has given me the courage to do effortlessly what I previously believed would be challenging. I cannot recommend Kat more highly. She is world-class.”

Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma
